The case on the murder of Paul Khlebnikov has come to the Moscow City Court for a repeat review
The case on the murder of Paul Khlebnikov, an editor of the Russian version of Forbes magazine, has come to the Moscow City Court for a repeat review. The court’s press service chief Anna Usacheva told Itar-Tass on Thursday that a date of examination is to be set within 30 days. Khlebnikov, 41, was shot to death in Moscow on July 9, 2004. Two Chechens, Kazbek Dukuzov and Musa Vakhayev, were charged with the murder. Moscow’s notary Fail Sadretdinov also figured in the case. Three other persons, including Khozh-Akhmed Nukhayev, who investigators considered as a mastermind of the murder, were put on the wanted list. The detainees were also accused of involvement in the murder of Chechnya’s ex-deputy prime minister Yan Sergunin, and in an attempt on the life of businessman Alexei Pichugin. However, a jury in the Moscow City Court acquitted the defendants in May 2006. The Russian Prosecutor-General’s Office appealed the verdict in the Supreme Court, and it overturned the acquitting ruling and sent the case for re-examination.
